Title: Small-Area Estimation in the Presence of Measurement Error Using Corrected Scores Approach

Corrected scores is an approach that has been used for decades now to handle models which have measurement error in covariates. This approach is based on finding a score function that is unbiased in the presence of measurement error. We use this technique to deal with the Fay-Herriot model in small area estimation where measurement error is present and hence provide efficient estimates of parameters that have lesser variance compared to estimates yielded by other methods.
